Georgia Bulldogs Vs. Mississippi State Bulldogs: Bulldogs Looking To Bounce Back

Mark Fox's Bulldog basketball team has had a few days to reflect on its disappointing and rather controversial home loss to Tennessee. Today we will see how well they put their time to good use during the break. Despite controversial ending, there were many things that Georgia could have done to prevent themselves from being in that position. They will have to bounce back today against a Mississippi State club that was picked by many to win the SEC's Western division. 

Mississippi State has won the last three meetings between itself and Georgia. Last season State overcame a 13-point deficit late to defeat Georgia 72-69 in Starkville. Rick Stansbury club checks in at 10-7 overall and 2-1 in SEC play. They defeated Auburn this past Sunday 85-66 and are riding a a two game winning streak. Senior guard Ravern Johnson leads State in scoring averaging 18.5 points per game. 

Georgia comes in at 13-4 overall and 2-2 in a highly competitive SEC East race. If the Bulldogs are to meet their pre-season goal of reaching the National Tournament then they must hold serve at home in conference play. 

Tip off is scheduled for 4pm today and can be seen locally on Peachtree TV.
